Today is the final day of training in town before FCD heads up north for this weekend's game.
// FC Dallas //
One veteran is ready to make an impact this weekend for FCD is Zach Loyd.
We're going to dive into this a bit deeper today but there are lots of chances for some young guys to get some minutes this weekend.
FCD will get a tough test today in the semifinal round of the GA Cup as they take on Club Universidad de Chile. La U finished unbeaten in their group play by winning games over San Jose Earthquakes and Spanish side Villareal.
// MLS //
Another preview of sorts for this weekend's game against United as we get a good look at their manager (and former player) Ben Olsen.
MLS is ranking in the dough left and right on sponsorships. I know FCD is doing fairly well at this game despite not seeing a huge return in the stands with the number of fans we'd like to see each week.
Given how MLS teams are still playing through this weekend's FIFA games, I'm not sure how you can call this a true break. But all three teams brought up in this discussion make a lot of sense for having a little more time to figure things out here.
Every year we get the debate about schedules and this season we get it four weeks into the new year. Fun.
Well that was quick. From rumor, to seeing Kaka break the signing via Twitter to official. All in about a day too.
No FCD-related names on this list but definitely a couple guys worth taking the time to look up at some point this season.
